Didn't really like this. As said below it feels almost greasy and I find it didn't blend to well across my eyelids. It also had a tendency to make my eyelid look dry and almost flaky. I don't know if it's because I have hooded asian eyes but within a minute it would without fail pool into my crease and I'd have to blend it out again before applying shadow as the shadow …Read more

So I was looking for something to help keep my eye-shadow on longer and a cosmetics sales person suggested eye-shadow primer. Her option was well over $20 so I decided to do a bit of research and see if I could find something a bit less expensive. I came upon NYX primer reviews and for the most part they were positive and considering the low price I figured it would be a good starting place for …Read more

This is very good product for its price range. I have oily skin, and very oily eyelids, and this really improves the staying power of whatever shadow, cream, liner etc. I apply. I have seen some bad reviews for it and I have experienced creasing once with this product myself, but I discovered how to use it correctly. You need to apply a fairly small amount, otherwise it won't dry properly …Read more

I have very dehydrated-dry eyelids that are prone to flaking. I have never experienced creasing with or without eye primer, and my main concern with eye primer is that it allows my eyeshadow to be vivid, prevents fading, and holds onto any shimmer or glitter well.

NYX's HD eyeshadow base does make the colors appear better than they would over bare skin and prevents fading …

Very underwhelming product, does not last long or intensify the color of my eyeshadows. I'll stick to Essence's Stage eyeshadow base.

This product works quite well, but only if you apply it right. "Right" is probably slightly different for everyone, and it took me quite a few tries to get it to work best for me. For some they apply just a tiny dot, while some use the applicator and smear it everywhere. Personally, I take the applicator and smear approximately whatever amount of product is at the little bend in the …Read more

I don't quit get the hype about this product, it's not on par with Nars at all. I have very oily eyelids and pretty much Nars and Too Faced Shadow Insurance are the only two primers that really keep my eyeshadow in place all-day-long --not even MAC's paintpots.
I got this, paid 10$ for it and thought why not try a cheaper eye primer..it really doesn't work for me at all …

I've always had stellar results from my NYX primer products. I wear my shadow (both high and low end) for 16+ hours a day and it never creases or fades. My shadow only comes off when I'm taking it off on purpose ;) My application method is to gently swipe then pat it all over my eye area, wait a minute, and dab off excess with a square of toilet paper. My only gripe is that the …Read more

I have been on the hunt for an affordable, effective eye primer since my UDPP in Eden dried up. This one from NYX was readily available and inexpensive ($8 at Target, I believe) so I decided to try it. I have heard mixed reviews on this product, but my feelings on it were just 'meh'. It has a silicone feel, like many primers do, and was sort of off white when applied. The applicator …Read more
